Following Stephanie Beadle’s retirement, the Company has appointed Danielle Portess as the Group Administration Manager with effect from 3rd April 2017.

Prior to joining the Company, Danielle spent most of her career in the transport industry, working in all areas from administration through to being a customer service advisor. Most recently Danielle worked for a family based firm in Stallingborough where she dealt with everything from administration to accounts and HR.

Originally from Immingham, she has recently moved back into the town with her partner and daughter. 33 year old Danielle said, “I am enjoying settling into working at On Line. Everyone is very friendly and approachable. I am looking forward to being as useful as Stephanie was, once I have learnt the ropes, and building on my role in the future.”

Danielle’s main hobbies include camping, mainly along the Yorkshire Coast, and visiting Wales. She is also a big fan of Formula 1 racing and was delighted to have had the opportunity to go to Silverstone last year.

Healing School Visit to Catch

  • Mel Dent


Brendan Conlan, Managing Director of On Line Design and Chairman of HCF Catch was present when the Stallingborough facility recently hosted a group of pupils from Healing Primary School.

The educational trip gave the pupils the opportunity to engage in learning about the world of engineering through a hands-on project in which the pupils are to create their very own racing car, with the help of some of the engineers and apprentices from Grimsby Institute at HCF Catch. Once the cars are completed the pupils will have the opportunity to race them against other schools, at an event to be held in Hull in July this year.

Brendan is extremely passionate about children understanding the career prospects that engineering can offer said, “We want children to understand the career prospects out there - engineering is a job for life. There is a misconception that engineering is a dirty, old profession, but in reality engineers and technicians are at the forefront of things we use every day. Mobile phones, computers and cars have all been designed and manufactured by engineers.”
